Clevedon Hall Wedding Venue

 Clevedon Hall

This weekend I was invited to visit Clevedon Hall wedding venue, a stunning countryside mansion in Bristol, Somerset.

The 150-year-old Victorian mansion has recently undergone a huge refurbishment project, restoring the building to its former glory to become one of the UK's top luxury hospitality venues. 

The grade II listed mansion is located just seconds away from the beautiful coastline but it's the picturesque grounds, pretty statue and scenic lake that will no doubt impress both you and your wedding guests.

Clevedon Hall has worked closely with Jane Clayton interior design team to bring back the style, glamour and grandeur Victorian mansion houses are known for.

 The owners were keen to keep the charm of the building in place including decorating the mansion in an old English countryside feel

Inside, you can find several beautifully decorated grand reception rooms: couples can tie the knot in the magnificent Great Hall - a huge dramatic space, host a champagne reception in the stunning glassed Orangery, then move on through to the atmosphere-rich Grand Library for a formal wedding breakfast.

The 25 bedrooms and suites are located on the first and second floors of the mansion and are all individually decorated. Our suite, Eagle Owl, was luxuriously styled to compliment the mansion house: the interiors were beautifully decorated with an English country house feel, plush furniture  and beddings, freestanding copper bath and stunning views over the grounds and lake

It's always lovely to see a building restored to it's original features and the owners at Clevedon Hall were set on this, restoring many of the original features including the windows, wood and Victorian fireplaces. I loved how the newly renovated bedrooms and suites were in keeping with the traditional values of the property, decorated with antique pieces and high quality reproductions.




 


All the luxurious furnishings both externally and internally are the perfect complement to such an important occasion and are great for photographs too!

After having a tour of the beautiful mansion, we dined in the Dame Rosa Burden room, that can be used as a ceremony room too.  The evening's culinary delights were created by the awarding winning head chef, Alan Jones.

The food was delicious, I particularly loved the cornish crab and lobster bisque. After our dinner, I had the opportunity to speak to the chef, Alan Jones, who talked about his passion for cooking and love of cooking fish dishes. It definitely showed as both the fish dishes were my favourite. 

Food is incredibly important at weddings and having a Michelin-starred culinarian as a Head Chef for your wedding is sure to go down as a hit with your guests!  Interestingly, there are no set menus are Clevedon Hall, every wedding is planned individually, so the chef will design the menus around the guests’ requirements.  This is a just one of many examples how the team at Clevedon Hall are keen to provide a bespoke service to suit your individual needs.
